I've Been Tagged 3 Times and a FREEBIE!!

Oh, my goodness!  I was tagged 3 times yesterday!!  I REALLY don't think I'm that interesting or that anyone wants to read 30 things about me so I'll QUICKLY answer the questions from the first 2 that tagged me.  I think that will be enough info about me!  :)  

I'm also working on a new Social Studies Unit about careers, producers and consumers, and goods and services so I'll include a FREEBIE at the end just for hanging in there!  

I hope to have my new unit up on my TpT store by Monday so make sure and check it out!    

I've been tagged by Marissa at WILD About First Grade, Becky at 2nd Grade Rocks, and Mrs. Dwyer at Mrs. Dwyer's A+ Firsties!  Thanks ladies for tagging me...how fun!
